Gooee’s Artist’s Statement: “I am fascinated by Formalism, both in terms of the creation of Form, and the revelation of the process by which Form develops from matter. This practice quadripartite; idea, matter, process and form (in that order) is at the core of my artwork. I take delight in the expression of my compulsion to investigate Form using the media of oil paint and clay”.
